You are saved
1 Thessalonians 5 verse 9 - 11:
For God decided to save us through our Lord Jesus Christ, not to pour out His anger on us. He died for us so that we can live with Him forever, whether we are dead or alive at the time of His return. So encourage each other and build each other up, just as you are already doing.
This awesome God gave His son to save you. What more do you need? He died so that we can live forever. Let us take this amazing gift and stand together, let us build each other up and lift each other up. Let us fight this battle together, let us not stand alone but unite. Let us live out the promise and shine His glory out to the world.
1 Thessalonians 5 verse 14 - 17:
Brothers and sisters, we urge you to warn those who are lazy. Encourage those who are timid. Take tender care of those who are weak. Be patient with everyone.
See that no one pays back evil for evil, but always try to do good to each other and to everyone else.
Always be joyful. Keep on praying. No matter what happens, always be thankful, for this is God's will for you who belong to Christ Jesus.
Always be joyful. We have so much to be greatful for, we have received so many blessings out of love. Knowing that the result of your life on earth is to be able to spend eternity with the creator of all creation, the maker of heaven and earth. The Lord our God, should overwhelm you with joy.
So smile, because you are saved. You are His creation, you are made in His image. He is bigger than we can ever imagine.
Keep this in mind:
Colossians 1 verse 17:
He existed before everything else began, and He holds all creation together.
On that cross:
The Star breather became the sin bearer
The Universe maker became man kind's saviour
